Come along for the ride of a day in the life of Makana and Alika—two rescued Laysan albatrosses—and their number one fan Nikki, our resident bird nerd and awesome aviculturist!
Happy Hatchdays to Makana and Alika, our Laysan albatrosses! 🎉 🐣
Makana (meaning “gift” in Hawaiian) turns 13 years young today, and Alika (meaning “guardian” or “protector”) turned 2 on Wednesday! Rescued as injured chicks and unable to survive on their own in the wild, these two beautiful, boisterous birds are awesome ambassadors for open ocean wildlife affected by plastic pollution.
